It's been a VERY looooooooooong while since I did a sheet mask review. I'm still trying to finish the x amount of boxes I got from Asia and it seems like everyone's reviewing the My Beauty Diary ones so I didn't want to flood my blog with the sameeeeeeeee thing! Anyway, a few weeks ago the founder for MaskerAide contacted me to review their masks. I'm on their last one and I figured honestly, I better review these before I forget about it!! They are on the unique edge and truly worthy a mention! So sit tight :)
MaskerAide Sheet Masks
What is this Product? (What it claims)
FUNCTIONAL DESIGN - Unlike liquid or clay masks, sheet masks are totally mess free! They are also convenient and very easy to use. And their small size makes them portable and great for travel.
BENEFICIAL COOLING EFFECTS - The cooling effect of the mask stimulates blood flow and relaxes facial muscles helping to release the signs of stress and fatigue.
ACTS AS AN INCUBATOR - The mask blocks the air from the skin enhancing the skin’s temperature which causes the pores to open and increases the skin’s metabolic rate. As well, it promotes sweat gland secretion increasing the oxygen content within the skin allowing for better absorption of vitamins and nutrients!
PROVIDES DEEP HYDRATION - The intense and quick surge of hydration from one mask plumps up the skin with needed moisture eliminating the signs of dehydration, dryness and aging. This results in perfectly soft and supple skin that radiates with health.
HOLDS and PROTECTS - The amazing material of our masks grabs a hold of our powerful ingredients and keeps them safe from external factors while on your skin.
ECO-FRIENDLY - Production plant emissions during the development of a sheet mask into the air from smokestacks and from waste water are significantly lower in comparison to many other masks that are on the market today.
Canadian Company, Formulated in Canada and Made in Korea

After all the pictures above, don't you think these masks are so cute?! I was honestly shocked that I can come across cutely designed masks by a Canadian company! Another great thing I really adored in terms of the packaging is that the mask is biodegradable and the packet itself can be recycled! *ding ding ding* Perfect score on Packaging!
In terms of the mask itself, they are definitely very juicy! Check out the picture below:
After trying all of the masks now, I noticed that there are 2 types of mask juice that they use.
One is a liquid, clear serum which was found in: All Nighter, Detox Diva, Pre Party Prep. The clear serum is lighter in consisency and was easily absorbed. It is best used during the day and before make up application. However, because I have desert-dry skin, it's not enough for me.
So if it's summer and you have oily skin, these 3 masks may be suitable for you.
The other one is a cream based serum that is thicker and milky in colour. Of course, in my opinion, they are more moisturizing as well. They can be found in: Beauty Rest'ore, I Don't Wanna Grow Up, Weather Warrior. I am really in love with these cream serum masks, they are moisturizing enough for me and with the leftover juice in the packet, I apply them to my neck and hands. For winter, dry skin beauties like myself, I think these masks are worthy to try out! :)
For the face-fit of the mask, I am not too satisfied. I think it's partly because of the structure of my face. In some of the pictures of fellow bloggers, I noticed the mask fits pretty well on them where I have the typical Asian Flat Face, the nose and cheeks areas fitted terribly. The eyes area was also too big for my Asian eyes and it totally missed my wrinkle areas around my nose.
Final comment about the price, for about $5 a mask is definitely not going to break the bank. I don't think they are too steep but it's not the best deal on the market either. Asian drugstore masks are average about $1.30 to $3 USD each (My Beauty Diary, FaceQ etc). The higher end masks like Shiseido, Laniege, Face Shop, Skin Food are about $5 to $15. I think that $5 for the cream based MaskerAide masks are certainly worth trying whereas I think $5 for the clear serum masks are a little steep.
Product: 3/5 ♥ Face-Fit and clear-serum based masks needs some work but cream-serums are awesome!
Packaging: 5/5 ♥ Excellent!
